JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday he would continue to try and resolve a deadlock in a coalition crisis and form a new government, after parliament took an initial move to dissolve itself.

“In the time left I will continue to act in every way possible in order to establish a government in the coming days,” Netanyahu said in a televised speech, ahead of a Wednesday deadline to form a new government.
